Andy Murray has made the perfect start to his comeback from injury, lifting the doubles title at the Queen's Club Championship.

The Scot partnered Spaniard Feliciano López to victory after a hip resurfacing injury in February - which he had in a bid to salvage his career.

They beat a pair made up of Englishman Joe Salisbury and American Rajeev Ram in a third set tiebreaker.

The duo of Murray and Lopez took the first set by 7-6, before losing the second 7-5.

It was a spectacular day for the Spaniard, as he had also claimed the singles title, beating Frenchman Gilles Simon.

Earlier this week, Murray said he's relieved to have returned to the court - after he feared that he would never come back. The three time Grand Slam singles champion said he felt "as well as I did there, not perfect in terms of my movement.

"But, pain-free. I mean I enjoyed it and it was nice to win, but that wasn't the number one priority."

Murray has already said that he will make a return to Wimbledon this Summer.

He will be partnering Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert - who had won the doubles title at SW19 in 2016, alongside Nicolas Mahut.

The former world number one has spoken recently about a potential return to singles tennis, saying "I don't think when Wimbledon finishes that I will just step on to the singles court the following week and everything's good.

"At this moment I've been progressing all of the time. At some stage it's probably going to plateau for a while before I'm able to kick on.

"I hope at some stage this year I would be able to get back to playing singles again. I'm not really interested in putting a time limit on it because I'm quite happy just now."

Today's victory is Murray's third doubles triumph in his career, the previous two coming in a partnership with his elder brother Jamie.
